Embracing Allergen-Friendly Asian Cuisine
If you’ve always had a soft spot for Asian-style cuisine like we do at Hook’d Up Bar and Grill, you’ll be thrilled to know that our soy-free fried rice is perfect even for those with allergies. We understand the challenges of allergies to soy, sesame, and fish, which are often common ingredients in Asian dishes. But fear not! With some creativity and our culinary expertise, we’ve crafted a fried rice recipe that bypasses soy sauce entirely.
The Key to Flavorsome Fried Rice
Fried rice has a distinct taste and texture that we don’t want you to miss out on. Instead of traditional soy sauce, we rely on coconut aminos as a substitute. These aminos have a remarkably similar taste to soy sauce and perform equally well in recipes. What’s more, they are not only gluten-free but also soy-free and generally allergy-friendly. If you find the taste slightly different, simply add a pinch of salt. Coconut aminos have a milder saltiness compared to soy sauce.
Crafting Gluten-Free Soy-Free Fried Rice
The beauty of our gluten-free fried rice is that it features simple ingredients that are naturally free of gluten. Here’s what you’ll need to whip up this delectable dish:
- Four cups of cooked white or brown rice (your choice!)
- A tablespoon of your preferred cooking oil
- Minced garlic (or ginger if you prefer)
- Beaten eggs or a vegan scrambled egg substitute (optional)
- Two cups of frozen peas and carrots for convenience
- One-third cup of coconut aminos (no soy in sight!)
- Two cups of your choice of ground chicken, beef, pork, or vegan meat substitute (if you prefer a heartier meal)
To ensure your rice has the perfect consistency, it’s best to use cold rice. You can either cook it earlier in the day or prepare it the night before.
Begin by sautéing your veggies and garlic in your favorite oil. Once cooked, set them aside and proceed to cook your scrambled eggs or vegan egg substitute, if using. Once the eggs are done, mix them with the vegetables. Next, add the rice, coconut aminos, and meat of your choice.
And that’s it! Making this mouthwatering soy-free fried rice couldn’t be simpler.
